The Fourth Annual Heart of Texas Hunter’s Appreciation Dinner is set for November 27, the Saturday after Thanksgiving at the Brady Civic Center.
The Dinner not only provides hunters visiting the Heart of Texas with good food and a chance to win great prizes, but also lets those hunters know the entire community appreciates the contributions they make to the economic and cultural vitality of the entire area.
In addition to a brisket and sausage meal with all the fixin’s from Hard Eight Pit Bar-B-Que, the Heart of Texas Hunter’s Appreciation Dinner again includes drawings for a Kawasaki 610 Mule 4X4, 20 rifles and shotguns, a Mathews bow and a Shoulder Mount – plus a guided hunt at The Wildlife Ranch in Mason County.
Admission to the Hunters Appreciation Dinner is $10 and includes the Brisket and Sausage meal and tickets for the drawings for door prizes. The meal will begin serving at 6:00 p.m.
Tickets for the drawing for the Kawasaki Mule are $10, while tickets for the drawing for the guns are $1 each. The drawings for the bow and the guided hunt are $10. Proceeds from the raffle drawings benefit the Brady/McCulloch County Chamber of Commerce.
Advance raffle tickets are available at the Brady/McCulloch County Chamber of Commerce Office at 101 East First St. Brady, TX 76825 or call (325) 597-3491. Tickets are also available at Jacoby Feed & Café, Texas Wildlife Supply, Keith’s Ace Hardware, SureFed Feeds, Texas Tumbleweed, Higginbothams, Hard Eight Bar-B-Que, Brady Butane, and KNEL.
And, back again in 2010 is the McCulloch County Jerky Championship. It’s a chance for those who feel they have a special knack for making wild game jerky to show off their skills. The winner will receive a plaque and world -wide recognition for his or her jerky making talents. Jerky samples can be dropped off Saturday afternoon at the Civic Center.
